My phone just loves to butt-dial. In the ~6 months I have owned it, I've made about 10 butt-dials, 2 of which were emergency phone calls. Naturally, I don't want to clog their services. How can I get my phone to stop butt-dialing?
My phone is a Kyocera Contact, so it's keypad is always exposed. I've tried locking the keypad on the phone (by pressing and holding the back button); all my butt-dials have happened when the keypad has been locked.
After a butt-dialing spree, I tried to make sure that I wasn't putting pressure on my phone when I was sitting down, by shifting its position in my pocket. This worked... for a while, until I made my second emergency phone call butt-dial.
Things that won't work:
- Putting my phone in a bag instead of my pocket. I need it in my pocket so that I can feel its vibrations, and it must be on the vibrate setting
- Not carrying a phone with me. Unfortunately, in this world, I need to have a way for people to contact me.
What are some good ways to prevent accidental butt-dials?
